I know you weren't arguing - I was just clarifying.

Now about the color of that mask...Dave...I hope you have the translucent teal? You know the blue will attract great whites...:>

I have not seen any great white sharks when I have snorkeled in the Caribbean.

I got my better mask from diversdiscount. Which I can highly recommend.

There was actually nothing wrong with the U.S. Divers mask I had. Until a certain Labrador Retriever got bored one day and figured out how to open the snorkel bag.

I always take my own snorkel and mask, don't really trust them to clean the ones that they pass out.

We ended up buying a set for each of us from Costco. Can't wait to try them out! :-D

A tip I have found useful is to use J&J Baby Shampoo as an anti-fogging agent. It is not as good as the more expensive ones you can get by any means. But it does work in helping to reduce the fogging.

Going on NCL Gem on April 5 to the Bahamas. I understand it will cost $29.00 for rental from NCL for the day. Sams Club just got in mask, snorkel and fins for $29.00. Looks like it's well made. My kids want to snorkel, so I'll just buy them here and then no lines! Also, the issue of their equipment having been in how many mouths! UGH!

Just wanted to update to say that we used our Costco snorkel equipment in Dominica and St. Thomas and it was fantastic! We just rented vests on site.

Thanks to Sonny for recommending Coki Beach. The snorkeling there was unbelievable!
